Access National Increases Dividend, Reports Second Quarter Earnings

Access National Corporation (NASDAQ: ANCX), parent company for Access National Bank (Bank), reported second quarter net income of $3.5 million, down from the record setting $3.9 million recorded in the second quarter of 2012. This represents the Corporation’s 52 nd consecutive quarterly profit over its 54 quarter history. Net income per diluted common share was $0.34 in comparison to the $0.38 reported in the second quarter of 2012.

The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.11 per share for holders of record as of August 7, 2013 and payable on August 23, 2013. This dividend represents a steady migration towards the stated objective equal to a 40% payout ratio of core earnings. It also represents a 1 cent increase over the prior quarter and a 10 cent increase over the last 9 quarters.

The second quarter of 2013 reflects a 21% increase in banking segment pretax earnings in comparison to the second quarter of 2012. With the closing of the Denver Mortgage Production Branch in April 2013 as well as an increase in mortgage loan rates, the mortgage segment’s contribution has decreased from 56% of the Corporation’s pre-tax income in the second quarter of 2012 to a contribution of 34% in the second quarter of 2013. This decrease in the mortgage division’s pre-tax contribution aligns with management’s intent, being that 70 – 80% of the Corporation’s net income is generated from the core business of the Bank.

Net interest margin for the first six months of 2013 decreased to 3.81% from 3.95% for the same period in 2012, yet on a linked quarter basis, the margin increased for the three months ended June 30, 2013 to 3.89% from 3.73% reported in the prior quarter.

Annualized return on average assets remained at 1.66% for both the first and second quarters of 2013, down slightly from the 1.80% reported for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Annualized return on average equity was 14.88% for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 compared to 17.55% for the same period last year.
